In 2002 Drummond Study Centre opened its doors at 296 Drummond Street, Carlton, as the inspiration of a group of parents who felt that their children needed personal guidance to channel their energy and to develop their talents. They were conscious of the fact that part of the normal learning process occurs outside the classroom, and is shaped by a variety of influences such as peers and the media.

Over the years hundreds of young people, from city and country Victoria, and many overseas students too, have benefited from the activities of the centre. Groups from Drummond have participated in 30 service projects during this time assisting indigenous Australian communities, and overseas communities in the developing world. These weeks are invariably are appreciated by the participants as much as those they help. Many find that the challenging work, ready availability of the sacraments, and cheerful camaraderie open unexpected horizons of generosity, faith and happiness.

In addition Drummond students have represented Australia at the Easter UNIV gatherings of university students in Rome on numerous occasions, the most recent being in 2024.

Drummond students and staff also attended World Youth Day in Cologne 2005, Sydney in 2008, Madrid in 2011, Brazil in 2013, Poland in 2016, and Portugal in 2023.
